Tactical UAVs are increasingly used on the battlefield and are becoming a mainstream product in the tactical category of weapons by virtue of their high efficiency and stability and cost effectiveness. Unmanned bombers can significantly reduce soldier casualties and can be quickly deployed on the front line of the battlefield to enable mortar shells to achieve the effect of guided missiles and effectively strike enemy targets. This time, a Middle East country invited LOONGUAV to participate in live-fire target testing, which received high attention from the military hierarchy and neighboring countries.
LOONG 3 is a VTOL fixed-wing UAV with small landing site requirements, high automation, long endurance, fast cruising speed and high operational efficiency.
The main function of the unmanned bomber is to drop bombs to strike with high precision. Whether the unmanned bomber can still strike the target accurately during the long-distance mission is the focus of this exercise. In this exercise, LOONG 3 carried mortar bombs and flew to a predefined target 10km away, automatically dropping bombs at the designated altitude (300m), hitting the target precisely and returning automatically. Thanks to its stable flight capability and precise software program control, the LOONG 3 can conduct high-precision bomb-delivery missions within a radius of up to 70km and can carry two 81mm or four 60mm mortar rounds to strike the target. Carrying multiple mortar shells, it is converted into an offensive weapon with missile-like functions to rapidly approach and precisely strike enemy targets. Compared with cruise missiles, air-to-ground bombs and other non-recyclable precision strike munitions, Loong 3 can be recycled and reused repeatedly, demonstrating high economy, making $100 artillery shells hit with the impact of a $1 million guided missile.
After the bombing mission was completed, the army commander ordered LOONG 3 to conduct quiet high altitude reconnaissance, the aircraft climbed to 1500m altitude and flew to the target area 12km away for reconnaissance, through the pods on board, switched to infrared heat source mode to scan the depths of the desert, and found the trajectory of the target vehicle within 1 minute, and used the 360x zoom camera to lock and track the target, and used laser ranging to accurately measure the location of the target vehicle, giving the command center fast real-time target location information.
LOONG3 has a maximum load of up to 10 kg, a maximum range of 200 minutes and a control range of over 60 km. The modular design of airframe components allows for rapid deployment within one minute. The independent drawer type load compartment design allows for quick replacement and flexible expansion.
The live-fire target test in which LOONG 3 participated won unanimous praise from the army commander and top brass, which not only reflects LOONGUAV’s excellent hardware production capability, but also shows LOONGUAV’s full understanding of battlefield needs as a tactical UAV expert to make such tactical products that meet the army’s needs.
